Default Nice looking unique guitar

Aloha Anders,

A very nice, unique looking parlor guitar with beautiful wood choices. I've used Masur Birch for appointments (overleaf, rosette, pick guard, butt plate) but never for a fingerboard. How does its hold up?

Question: Will you finish the Masur Birch fretboard or leave it natural?

The reason I ask is that, if left unfinished, the Birch will definitely discolor & turn black w/ regular use, especially in the first seven frets, as with worn-through maple fretboards on an electric guitar.

Will you finish the Birch to deal with that appearance & wear issue?

Good Luck, Anders!
